Eriksson officially employed with Manchester City

 Man City officially confirmed the three-year deal with Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Eriksson officially employed with Manchester City The Swede signed a three-year deal with Manchester City to manage the club on Friday, after a month of rumours and gossips. The former Thailand Premier Thaksin Shinawatra finally closed the deal on gaining 75% of the club's ownership and he wasted no time to sign Eriksson to succeed Stuart Pearce as manager of Manchester City.

 Sven-Goran Eriksson, 59, has been out of the football arena since stepping down from England after the last World Cup finals. But Eriksson was eager to get back to coaching and spend the last few days at Eastlands, meeting players and working on his strategy to rebuild the squad. This is the first time Eriksson is employed by a Premier League club.

 "I am absolutely delighted and honoured to have been asked to be Manchester City's manager. This is an exciting challenge and I have already started making preparations for the new season. I want to deliver a team that our fantastic fans can be proud of," Eriksson was quoted on the official Manchester City website. The club's management also expressed delight to have the Swede with City.

The contract was signed after Thaksin Shinawatra announced, that all objections from the Manchester City board of directors against his take-over, have been waived and he gained the control of the football club through his company UK Sports Investments Ltd.
